Halloween Trick Or Treat Pancake Recipe

I make pancakes every week.  I usually make a ton and then freeze them for an easy and quick breakfast in the morning. 
Recently I made another batch of my Candy Googley Eyes and invited some friends over to join in the fun.  It's a new tradition around here.  We were talking about what to use them on and it dawned on me to sprinkle them over my pancakes for some Halloween fun for my kids!

Yes, it's giving them some sugar in the morning, but one time is just fine!!!  What child wouldn't want to eat these?  When I put a plate of these in front of my kids, I saw their huge grins and the sparkle in their eyes and I knew I was the coolest mom in that moment.

SunnyD Book Spree

One of the things that instantly takes me back to my childhood is a tall drink of SunnyD.  I feel like I'm 7 again whenever I drink it!  It's fun to see how much my kids like it too!  We don't do a whole lot of juice in our house (mostly water and milk drinkers), but when we do I make sure it's something fun like SunnyD.  I picked up some the last time I ran into Walmart.


Artisan No Knead Crusty Bread

I did not grow up eating homemade bread.  We were a Wonder Bread (are they even still around?) kind of household and I didn't know any differently until I was in Jr. High School.  We were also a Country Crock house and I'll save that opinionated post for another time!

I had met a new friend, Laura, in my science class and found out that we had the same English class as well.  She had just moved from Oregon and she seemed really nice.  It came up that we attended the same church (which was rare to find in Las Vegas) and had a ton of other things in common. 
This homemade artisan no knead artisan bread recipe is super easy to make!  Way better than any expensive bakery!  |  My Name Is Snickerdoodle


Pulled Pork And Sweet Corn Nachos For A Simple Dinner

I truly thought that I would have more time on my hands once I had children in school.  Technically I only have one, but with one less child at home to take care of I can get more done. Right?  All of you more experienced moms are laughing at me right now because it's only taken me 3 years to figure out that my time just gets zapped during the days.   It's harder to get more done!  Not impossible, but I've got to be more careful and plan.

On those days (and they are frequent) that I don't get things planned out, I find myself scrambling to pull a flavorful dinner together for dinner.  All three of my boys are usually "starving" by 4 and my husband always comes home hungry for dinner right at 5.  I've got to come up with a simple and easy dinner and cold cereal just won't cut it with that crowd!

Cheesy Garlic Bread

Lately, I've totally been into cheese.  And shamelessly so!  I hated cheese growing up and only ate it when it was on pizza.  Even then I would pick most of it off.  I do try to eat it in moderation, but this Cheesy Garlic Bread is the exception every once in a while!
The combination of the cheeses, garlic, butter (shhh!!) and mayo seriously make this crazy good.  You could even mix in some fresh herbs.  How yummy would that be?!


Skewered Eyeballs

My kids have been talking about what they want to be for Halloween for the last few weeks.  I'm not sure how it is in your house, but they tend to change their minds a bit.  All I know is that I want to be more creative this year with the Halloween season and surprise them with little tricks and treats along the way!
Having little kids at home I love quick and easy treats that truly surprise and excite them.  These Skewered Eyeballs are just the trick!  They are just the right amount of gross, but still taste great.  Last year I made my very own Googly Candy Eyes  and I try to find every excuse to use them.  Once you find out how simple and inexpensive they are to make, you won't ever buy them again!


Homemade Limeade

Every since I made my first homemade Fresh Lemonade, all I see are endless possibilities with flavor combos!  It evolved when I made my Strawberry Basil Lemonade and I haven't looked back!  There is something so satisfying about make something refreshing and delicious.  They are actually really easy to make and truly do taste so much better than any powder or drink you can get pre-made from the store.  


25+ Candy Googley Eye Treats For Halloween

Last year I shared a tutorial of how to make Candy Googley Eyes.  I make them from scratch because not only are they the easiest thing to make, but I save a ton of money on them!  They became popular pretty quick, but I also got a lot of comments and emails from people saying they were super fun, but had no clue how to use them.
This year I've been keeping my "eye" out for some super great ideas of how you can use them.  Here are some spooktacular Halloween treats that you can make using Googley Candy Eyes!
